You and Your Toddler

Feelings add spark to life. They can be both satisfying and upsetting. Feelings try to tell us something, usually about what we need to feel content. Toddlers will tell you what is going on by expressing strong feelings: shrieking for joy or screaming in anger. Toddlers have an uncontrollable desire to find out about themselves and their world.
